25 Inspiring Quotes to Give You Strength When Feeling Low

Looking for some words of encouragement to give you strength when you’re feeling down or going through hard times?

When life gets challenging and you’re feeling low a little motivation can really help.

This allows us to push that low, depressed feeling out of the way in order to value ourselves more and open ourselves up to feeling good.

One great way I’ve found that heals the mind and soul is uplifting, feel-good quotes.

They serve as a little reminder that things will get better and you can get through this.

You can also share these words of encouragement to a friend feeling down, to help lift their spirits.

Read through these inspirational quotes and let me know in the comments the quote that gives you strength and makes you feel better.

P. S. I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine. I deal with depression and anxiety. There, I said it.

I feel I can share this as I know SO many of you out there are also experiencing or have experienced prolonged moments of feeling low, which can lead to depression and/or anxiety.

In many cases they go hand in hand like a couple of friends – of course, these are the friends you DO NOT want in your life.

I am happy to say that I know this is something I have to deal with and therefore I can do everything in my power to conquer depression head-on. This can be through a mindful self care routine, living in the present or giving myself permission to say no.

Even for those who don’t experience depression, we can all have low days from time to time. The days where everything seems hard, where everything seems like more of an effort than it should.

Having the strength to move through days like this can be tough and tiresome.

NOTE: If you are having hard days all the time and feel consistently low you could be dealing with depression. If this is the case, please seek help from your family doctor.

Also, therapy and potential medication go a long way to helping you get back on your feet again. So, NEVER be ashamed to reach out for professional help.
